Local SEO Services

How Local SEO Works

Don’t think of local SEO as SEO on a “smaller scale” but rather as a highly focused strategy. Its importance and complexity aren’t diminished — they’re just channelled toward a targeted local area.

While broader SEO campaigns cast a wide net, a local SEO campaign is indispensable for businesses aiming to dominate their local markets, especially small businesses. In practical terms, local SEO maximises your visibility across Google’s suite of apps and populates your brand across pertinent local directories.

As the majority of commerce migrates to the web, your company’s digital footprint is even more important than its physical storefront. Local SEO boosts your organisation’s online presence and visibility so search queries and leads are continuously in touch with your locations, products, services and differentiators.

You can think of local SEO as being everywhere your local customers need you to be – all at once.

Local SEO Specialist Support

SEO is really an omnichannel initiative, especially within the confines of a specific local area.

Because signals from social media, inbound links and online business directory listings all influence SEO results, you need an agency that’s versed in all of these practices. That includes the strategy to plan campaigns, the coordination to execute them and the talent to improve your projects and see them come to life – all in one local SEO package.

Brafton’s SEO expertise is complemented by technical support from our web developers, ideation and creation from our multidisciplinary creative departments and real-time, end-to-end accountability from project managers.

Our local SEO marketing services are organised and run by an in-house team so you can access strategy, assets and analytics through a single point of contact across the entire spectrum of your SEO package. With Brafton, there’s no need to juggle multiple vendors, outsourced contractors or unvetted freelancers from various international time zones – everything’s done in a cohesive, collaborative workflow you can trust.

What’s more, you have the confidence of knowing that your local search engine ranking improvements are backed by Brafton expert consultants who are versed in the latest local SEO tips and best practices. This means that all ranking factors including directory listings, positive reviews, Twitter and other social media signals are incorporated into our local search engine process.

With Brafton, your potential customers have never been so within reach.

Google as Your Homepage

We take a methodical, data-led approach to engineering SEO victories, and that often starts with optimising your brand across Google’s suite of interconnected applications.

Google automatically exports the business data from your Google Business Profile account to a number of other important online marketing channels, including:

  • Google Maps.
  • Local 3-packs.
  • Knowledge panels.
  • Google Posts.
  • SERP carousels.

That said, the proper transfer and population of this information — addresses, services, number of locations, etc. — is only possible if your Google Business Profile is appropriately claimed, set up and optimised.

With Brafton, every Google SERP effectively serves as the front door to your business. When searchers need you, they find you.

Local SEO Ranking Factors

Organic local search rankings have an enormous impact on whether your company is visible online and how much traffic you can expect to generate.

While the core tenets of SEO apply in principle, local SEO follows subtly different practices because the ranking factors in play are weighted differently in the eyes of search engines including Google and Bing.

Industry studies have shown the top local organic search rankings that should influence your marketing campaigns are:

  • On-page signals: 36%
  • Link signals: 26%
  • Behavioural signals: 9%
  • Google Business Profile signals: 9%
  • Personalisation: 7%
  • Citations: 7%
  • Reviews: 6%

An investigation of these correlations reveals that local SEO solutions must be tailored to user preferences because positive reviews and social commentary have an outsized impact on your site’s ranking potential. In terms of local SEO best practices, the above ranking factors are a great starting point on which to build your next campaign.
